All that I can say is that I truly hope that the BlackHawks can give those Wings a run for their money this year.

It's been so long since we've had a team worth cheering. I think that Doug Wilson was still playing. Remember him?

During those years, I lived about 2 miles from the Old Chicago Stadium. Talk about barns!!! My roommate or I would, at 7pm say Wanna go to a game, and we'd be in our seats by the 7:20 face off.

Not just those Hawks teams, but the Bulls, just before things went batshit for the Bulls. Michael was playing, and brilliant, but there hadn't been any championships yet.

Oh what heady times to be a Chicagoan...

Hawks and B's are very similar franchises: Both Original 6 teams with an insane, if dwindling, fan base that's been cheated for YEARS by HORRIBLE management.... let the debate begin who's more despicable: the Wirth or Jacobs families....both teams are on ridiculous Cup droughts (Bruins 1972, Hawks 1961) but to see both teams playing so well now just feels right.

Could you imagine how nuts (and how great for the NHL) a Bruins-Hawks Cup Final would be?

btw, the Winter Outdoor Classic was awesome...love the old school unis both teams wore.

now i WOULD pay $100 for a ticket to see a B's Hawks finals game (as opposed to the Geriatric Dead)

you are dead on - that would be a classic matchup and great for the league
